The Journey to Full Day, Full Year Early Education

When our Head Start classes started just a few weeks ago, 7 of our classrooms began the transition from a partial day and partial year schedule to a full school day and full school year schedule.

Research has documented that all kids, particularly low income children, experience greater positive impacts from participating in high quality extended day and year classrooms.

We are beginning a journey at Children’s Friend to move all of our Head Start classrooms to a full school day and full school year schedule in the coming years. This journey continues our quest to implement changes that improve the quality and positive impacts of our services to our youngest and most vulnerable children and their families.
